No More Boring Sub Plans! Digitizing Lesson Plans
Why change lessons just because you have a sub in your classroom? Students know when they are being given busy work, and why should they read and answer questions just because you are not present? Sometimes sub lessons impede unit pacing, and there are no guarantees that the substitute is going to give the information to the class as intended. Remove the middleman and create interactive lessons designed for the students to follow, while the sub monitors behavior. Utilize Google Classroom, Google Suite, #hyperdocs, and YouTube to create complex, thought-provoking or collaborative lessons for your students.

What Makes You Think This Is New?
EdTech: the buzzword of the 21st Century. But what makes tech in the classroom relevant to our digital native students? When was the last time we as educators sought to learn from students and collaborated on significant EdTech possibilities? Creativity is at the core of innovation. Without it, technology is just a tool. How might we explode the paradigm that technology and arts are opposing ends of the edu-spectrum? The design-thinking method mirrors the creative methods of arts, circulated for generations. So what makes you think this is new? Let’s bridge the gap and get the best of both worlds.
